Well, how did you do?

1-4: You get the Post Bank Holiday Syndrome all-clear. Chances are you either worked over the long weekend (sorry), or mistakenly spent it doing something productive.

5-7: You are a worrying borderline case. To check, look at the text messages sent from your phone over the weekend. If there are any that make you want to dissolve with mortification, the diagnosis is positive.

8-11: This is a confirmed, full-blown case of Post Bank Holiday Syndrome. There is only one remedy: immediately retire to your sofa with a duvet, a box set, and a family-sized tub of ice cream.
